i'm beth mccloud. you should know there are severe storms out there. maybe not in your area but the risk for tonight is there. it is exactly almost correlates right to the radar. first things first, severe thunderstorm warning in effect until 7:00 p.m. for ashland, crawford, knox and richmond county. this is a quick moving system. it is soaking things in its path. this is just part of the line of storms coming through, if you
6:21 pm
head to the basement. lightning tracker is on, there are big winds. there is hail associated with this. north of there, not in the watch box, heavy rain coming down all around norwalk. this is all pushing towards vermillion. behind it is heavier rain coming all the way down close to the columbus area. all this ultimately will funnel right over the same area that got hit earlier this slowly but surely these -- this line of storms is moving off to the east. when i put the rainfall totals on for the next couple of hours, these are just estimates, i can't help but notice h this one towards lorraine that has already seen a lot of rain this afternoon, over an inch. this is just in a couple of hours. the interesting thing i'm most worried about, south of there, that's where the heaviest rain totals are adding up.
6:22 pm
downpours, thunder an lightning towards cleevend heights and richmond heights as well. heading out tonight, best bet is to carry an umbrella and to have a backup planner someplace you can run and get cover. the line of showers and storms is ultimately going to move up and over cleveland. downtown area could see rainshowers as early as 7:30 tonight but could continue all the way through midnight as a lot of h this rain drags across the area. behind all this, once the nicer days. today and tomorrow, not looking stellar. future view keeps that system in place through the overnight. overnight tonight after midnight, there will be a lull in the action. the heat and humidity will be on tomorrow which is only going to increase the chances of showers and storms in the afternoon. the heat index, i know it is hot out there. if you haven't gotten the rain yet, feels like 96 in akron.
6:23 pm
because they saw rain an hour ago. 68, along the lake shore, not a comfortable sleeping night. tomorrow another run at 0 degrees. there is a chance we'll see afternoon storms form. another day kind of like today, a mixed bag, mostly cloudy with a chance of some storms. this is the last 90 degree day at least for the next 11. we get a and gorgeous weather breaks out
